We were sent the monsterrific book - Monsters Love Underpants. Written by Claire Freedman and Ben CortThe boys were very excited to have this land on our doorstep, we have read most of the other panty books such as Aliens love Underpants, Aliens love Panta Claus and Dinosaurs love Underpants.Anything to do with monsters the boys love, so when it came to reading this at bedtime they shot upstairs and got ready to listen.You'll never look at monsters in the same way, scary don't be silly not when they dance around in underpants.The illustrations captured them from the moment we opened the book. They are bright, vivid and sure to make your little one giggle.The twins found this monster the funniest one by far, they giggled themselves silly at his dropped down pants!Amazon:

I was sent the Kid Sleep Moon by the lovely people over at Claessen'Kids to review.
The twins are good at sleeping, but they do have issues with winding down and waking up a little bit too early ...... especially in the summer when the mornings are much lighter.
What comes in the Kid Sleep Moon box? -
Setting the clock up couldn't be any easier, you set the clock with the correct time and then decide when you want the wake up alarm to go off, once you have done that it's time to pick from a choice of either 4 lullabies or 4 alarms for the wake up call.
If your baby is young you can use the Kid Sleep Moon as a nightlight and it comes with a spare face just for this option.
I set the boys alarm to go off at 7am as this fits in with our weekly morning routine, for the weekend I will set it for half 7, with the aim of trying to get it to 8 though I feel I may be pushing my luck with that....Noah doesn't even sleep in till then.
The boys picked the cockerel as their alarm call. They did end up waking up and shouting cookadooodledooooo with fits of giggles for the first few days.
The "go to sleep" function is great, the boys really took to this and loved watching the sun go down. whilst the sun goes down it means we can read a bedtime story and then watch the sun go down and when the moon appears it plays chime bells to let you know it is now time for bed.

Jon came home last night and excitedly told me he'd signed the boys and us up to Save the Children's new campaign #DenDay.
Once he told me all about it, I thought what a brilliant idea and wanted to share it will all of you.
Everyone loves building dens kids and ever big kids! You can tune in with your child's imagination and teach them as you build!
Whilst you're having fun you can also be raising money for such a worthy cause!
So why not join in the fun, here's all the info you'll need.....
UNITED KING”DEN”: YOUR COUNTRY NEEDS YOU!
Build a better world with Save the Children’s most fun campaign to date
Save the Children is launching Den Day, a super-fun family fundraiser which invites the British public to pick a date between 29th May and 6thJune to unleash their imaginations and build their ultimate den. Den Day gives everybody an opportunity to get creative for a good cause; by getting sponsored to spend a day or night in their den, families can raise money to help Save the Children build better lives for children around the world.
Taking part is easy, whether you pile up cushions and create a bed-sheet teepee, transform the sitting room into a huge den, or a cardboard box into the entrance to a magical world, your imagination is the only limit. Kids and grown-ups can sign up at denday.org to get a free kit packed with ideas and tips to plan a magical experience!
Den Day aims to highlight the issues faced by children around the world who don’t have a safe place to sleep or play. In 2014, Save the Children responded to 84 emergencies in 47 countries – delivering life-saving food, water, healthcare, education and shelter to over 5 million people. The money raised by Den Day could help provide the vital aid children and their families need next time a devastating emergency hits.
Vicky Fallon, UK Head of Fundraising Campaigns at Save the Children, said: “Millions of children around the world don’t have a safe place to sleep; they might not have a bed, blankets or even a roof to sleep under. By building a dream den and raising money, you can help give children around the world a safe, warm place to dream.”
Don’t forget to share photos of your dream den using #DenDay
